I have a friend, he has an iBook, they have kittens, the iBook's keyboard is the warmest spot in the room...<br><br>I'm trying to find an app that simply locks/unlocks the keyboard with a specified key combo so that when it's locked, no random kitten action triggers sending of emails, renaming of files etc. So far, all I can find is apps that trigger the screen saver w/password, which is not what's wanted here. The idea is to still be able to see what's on the screen, but for the keyboard to have the equivalent of an iPod 'hold' switch.<br><br>Anyone know of any apps that do this?<br><br>- padmavyuha<br><br>PS Happy New Year!<br><br>*edit* Actually, it would be just as useful (and perhaps easier to implement) to have an icon in the menubar that locks/unlocks the keyboard, as the mouse (perversely) holds no fascination for the kittens, and that way the mac wouldn't be constantly monitoring the keyboard input. Maybe I'll have a crack at writing this myself... <br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple>

My cat problem is that my old fat Stealth likes to lie on my lap, and she sometimes overflows onto the keyboard, usually depressing a modifier key so that when I try to type something I get all sorts of strange things happening. So far she hasn't caused me to lose anything, thank the good lord.<br><br>   
